Tell us a little about yourself,
your career and current position.

Tell us a little about yourself,
your career and current position.

I grew up in southern Virginia, went to NYU for college
and never left. While I majored in sociology and journalism
at NYU, and started a career in the literary world right after
school, I quickly found that I needed to be in a more fast-paced
environment. I was lucky to find that in the event world. In my
current position, I develop and implement plans to market and
promote several event spaces that we manage.

I am an event planner for a mortgage technology company,
Black Knight Financial Services, where I handle the logistics
and branding of more than 90 events annually. Trade shows and
meetings are my passion, and I'm looking forward to continuing
to grow in this industry.

What are you hobbies, and what do
you like to do in your spare time?

I love to travel, read books that teach me something new, run
in Central Park, and spend time with friends and family.

I make the most of my city - I love going to concerts and
Broadway shows, visiting museums and art galleries and finding
new city adventures!

What was your favorite traveling experience?
My company worked on a conference and expo in
Las Vegas, a place I had never visited before. I think
it was a great experience to visit Las Vegas for work,
rather than for play. It's a way to see another energetic
city through a different lens than most.

What was your main reason for joining MPIGNY?
I wanted the chance to meet like-minded people in the
industry, to become more involved and learn from others outside
of my own company.

What do you hope to get from
you MPIGNY membership?

What are you hobbies, and what do
you like to do in your spare time?

What was your favorite traveling experience?
Work-wise my favorite travel experience so far was Boston
last October where I supported Black Knight at a large mortgage
industry conference. I learned some new skills and walked the
Freedom Trail when it was finished!

What was your main reason for joining MPIGNY?
I want to get more involved with the local community within
this industry.

What do you hope to get from
you MPIGNY membership?
I'm hoping to learn more about the industry by attending the
local chapter events, meet new people and start preparation to
take the CMP exam in the next year. @

I hope to meet new people, learn from their experiences and
socialize with people in my own industry.
